Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Joe Silva Is Passionate About His Work

(‘Yes, now finish him you fool.  Finish him!  Mwahahahaha!’ Photo courtesy of

The Canadian no-accounts over at Fightlinker went looking through the UFC’s Fight Night photo gallery and found some pretty interesting shots, like this one of matchmaker Joe Silva getting all riled up about Rafael Dos Anjos‘ weirdo thigh compression move on Tyson Griffin.  We’ve previously taken note of Silva’s tendency to lose his freaking mind when somebody does something cool, and we love to see a man with this kind of fire in the belly, but what do you think is going on with him here?  Is that the look of a man who is pumped up about the chance for a crazy upset, or a man who just realized that he forgot to close the garage door when he left home.  Oh God, the cats will get out!!!!

I think he does the same thing as jared shaw, because he roots for those who he wants to win, Hints Stephan Bonnar, we all know they are buddy buddy/Dana's bitches.

So what that he enjoys and is passionate about his job. We should all be so lucky.

Congrats to "badunkadunk" on the unanimous decision victory after being put through a mangle.

I'll show Joe Silva what it means to be street certified *cracks knuckles*

This is going to be my best pie yet! ^.^

Based on the expressions of the people around him, that looks like a man that just cut the cheese.

Jared Shaw does THE EXACT same thing once and it somehow symbolizes how Elite was rooting for one guy over another and how it was unprofessional. This guy does is repeatedly and its considered passion.

Anal White openly roots for one of his favorites against another guy who works for him and its considered 'business' as usual when even boxing promoters would be embarassed to do the same

Oh wait, Ben's tongue is still stuck up White's taint so Im wont disturb him while he is eating....

After being punched in the balls by Rampage 5 times, Joe finally snapped.

What's with the face of the guy sitting on Silva's's creepy, demonic and yet fits the situation

Ben - Do you just rip every article off of Fightlinker?

Look at that leg lock done by his legs. Looks sick as fuck. No wonder Joe Silva is having uncontrollable internal orgasms.

What I didn't understand is why he didn't start kicking the shit out of that thigh after he thigh compressed it until it was melted rubber? Totally missed opportunity to fuck him up.

I think that Joe Silva is one of the main reasons for UFC's success.

That is definitely the face of someone who is or was very excited about this calf/thigh splitter, but is now waiting for that ever gut-wrenching "popping" sound.

Gotta at least respect Silva's passion for the sport.

I imagine Joe Silva and Tyson Griffin are the Corsican brothers and Joe feels Tyson's pain.
The Can- April 4, 2009 at 9:26 am
Joe Silva is the best. Gotta love how he freaked out after that spinning elbow on Stephan Bonnar.
